Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--February 2016

Figure 1.--Americans throughout its history, the 19th century and early-20th century, werecinvinced that they lived in exceptional country. The seire of millions of Europeans to come to america to improve their lives only confirmed this as well as the rapid economic growth, transforming ailderness to an indutrial giant. The Depression shook the faith of many amrricanns in bith their country and capitalism--in part because the Government's role in creating the Great Depression was hid by left-wing academicians and journalists admiring President Roosevelkt. World War II became a national crusade, the only war in which there was a massive national consenus. It helped restore the faith of Americans in their country and capitalism. It was an extrodinary national effort and accomplishment--essentially saving Western Civilization. The press caption hear read, "First Boy Scout Poster Presented at City Hall: First of the 52,ooo Third War Bond posters to be dustributed throughout New York City, September 4, by 5,000 Boy Scouts , goes to Acying Mayor Newbold Morri at City Hall. Frank Conley, 12, First Class Boy Scout of Troop 613, N.Y.C., presents the poster as one of the Government Dispstch Bearers. Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau has authorized the Boy Scouts of America to distribute hundreds of thousands of these posters throughout the nation, tomorrow."

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let us know if you have any question about this HBC feature.
